With a sign in the yard, it’s official that we are selling the house we put our hearts and souls into 27 years ago. You don’t want to know how many tears I’ve shed thinking about leaving. Typically, I’m not attached to things which makes my emotions somewhat surprising.
We’ve done all that we learned we should do to help a house sell quickly. Gone are the colors that thanks to the architectural design made them so easy to use.
They have been replaced by neutrals though I did cheat a little and used three values of gray. Actually, the new look may help me get used to the idea of a more neutral palette that I’m planning for our new place.
In a couple of places I couldn’t resist leaving a touch of color. Fuchsia has been one of my favorite accents as it hints of energy and fun.
Another place I couldn’t bear to paint was the dining room ceiling which was so meticulously done by two very talented women and made the space such a standout..
What is really weird is that the walls are bare except for a couple of paintings. For me, this is carrying the minimalist look a tad too far, but I’m told that potential buyers don’t want to experience your taste but want to imagine their own things in a house.
With the painting done and everything stripped to the bare minimum, we are ready for the lookers. I have to confess to feeling anxious as we begin this bittersweet process, but I am hopeful that someone comes along that will love this unique house and appreciate all the features that make it special.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
